, 'r Jr 9 ?^ l h . e , Edison Company in order to combat declining sales decided to launch 
the FIRST LONG PLAYING DISC RECORD. These were made by maintaining the 
record speed at 80 rpm but by narrowing the grooves to 400 per inch (the finest 
grooves ever issued commercially). These records required a special adapter and 
needle for the Edison machine. Partially because of a lowered volume level and 
delicate grooving the records were not a commercial success and are quite rare 
today. The last 12 inch issue was taken from electrically recorded masters. There 
are no selections of more than 5 minutes on the issued records although theBeethoven 
5th Symphony was dubbed and distributed to dealers as a sample to determine the 
possibility of issue. 

Future installments will include data on the 40 minute record and the unissued 
masters.

LONDON'S SONG AND DANCE MEMORIES OF 
NOT-SO-LONG-AGO 

JACK BUCHANAN and JESSIE MATTHEWS 

To their everlasting shame, the majority of the original per- 
formances in musicals, musical plays, operettas and vaudeville 
remained unwaxed by the recording concern through most of the 
lush years of the golden twenties and sparkling thirties. Thanks 
to their indifference, nothing or almost nothing remains of the 
original performances of SALLY, SUNNY, FUNNY FACE, CAT 
AND THE FIDDLE, MUSIC IN THE AIR, ANYTHING GOES, OF 
THEE I SING, BAND WAGON, DUBARRY WAS A LADY, the 
many editions of the FOLLIES, Berlin's MUSIC BOX REVUES and 
countless others but fond memories. .. and memories lose their 
perspective as the performance recedes into the darkening past. 
Oh. . .there were token examples to whet the appetite: One side- 
imagine -- ONE!. . .by DENNIS,, KING of'^SONG OF THE VAGA- 
BONDS, coupled with ONLY A ROSE by CAROLYN THOMPSON; 
FRED ASTAIRE and CLIFTON WEBB were invited to do. vocal 
choruses of a few of their hit numbers. . .with currently popular 
dance bands. From all I can learn, MARILYN MILLER, with a ' 
career spanning close to two decades, was never recorded in any- 
thing at all. Fortunately, when FRED ASTAIRE took himself off 
to the movies, with soundtracks well established, practically all 
of his work since 1933 exists, even if much of it is now unavail- 
able, and in duplicate: In his heyday, there were no soundtrack 
albums, therefore what he had already done for camera and needle 
was largely repeated on commercial records. There never has 
been anyone to come within miles of ASTAIRE: GENE KELLY 
came closest on the Hollywood scene, but his dancing lacked the 
striking originality and his singing the "just right" -ness that 
ASTAIRE inevitably produced in his songs. 

I was reminded of London's counterpart to FRED ASTAIRE by a 
recent release on English Decca's lower-priced ACE OF CLUBS 
label: from the thirties, a set of reissues on one side by JACK 
BUCHANAN and on the other, JESSIE MATTHEWS. Interesting 
examples that no personality collector would pass by, and priced 
at the equivalent of R.C. A. 's Camden label, but of course not 
available in the U.S. 

Both English stars were well-known over here, from Broadway 
appearances and, largely, film musicals of the thirties. BUCHA- 
NAN was ASTAIRE's equal in one thing: his polished suavity,' and 
his dancing and singing were fine, if not in Fred's league. 

On this record, ACL 1140, we are given seven selections from 
Jack and from Jessie. The recording is amazingly good and most 
of the music amazingly bad, most of it by the same tunesmiths, 
a caricature of the sparkling nuggets being simultaneously struck 
off for ASTAIRE AND ROGERS by GERSHWIN, KERN, BERLIN and 
PORTER. Some of these embarrassing titles were EVERYTHING 
STOPS FOR TEA, I'M IN A DANCING MOOD, LET'S PUT SOME 
PEOPLE TO WORK, THIS'LL MAKE YOU WHISTLE, THERE ISN'T 
ANY LIMIT TO MY LOVE, all of which BUCHANAN does much 
better than they deserve. Actually, although he was a recording 
artist only spasmodically, his few earlier efforts from the London 
stage and films were much, much better than the exclusively film 
selections on this new release. His first record with which I am 
familiar is a 12" pairing of two hits from SUNNY: WHO, on which 
he duets with the charming BINNIE HALE, and LET'S SAY GOOD- 
NIGHT, done with a popular record and variety hall songstress » 



who shared several disks and personal appearances with JACK 
BUCHANAN through the years- -ELSIE RANDOLPH. 

About the same time, Buchanan appeared on the London sta^ge 
in an English musical that never crossed the sea: THAT'S A GOOD 
GIRL, and from it he recorded the four featured songs: SWEET 
SO-AND SO/CHIRP CHIRP, both with ELSIE RANDOLPH and 
PARTING TIME/MARCHING SONG, with a chorus and RAYMOND 
NEWELL. All of these were done for ENGLISH COLUMBIA. 

His next big hit was the flavorsome continental film, GOOD 
NIGHT, VIENNA, which had music good enough to be compared 
to Oscar Straus, although by the popular English composer, 
Posford. This film, which was released in the U. S. as MAGIC 
NIGHT, had some stunning songs, of which BUCHANAN did the 
two lilting melodies, GOODNIGHT, VIENNA and LIVING IN 
CLOVER . . . accompanied, I feel sure, by none other than a RAY 
NOBLE group, which makes this something of a collector's item. 
It is on HMV B-4083, and may in fact be the star's best record. 

Shortly before this, BUCHANAN had gone to Hollywood, 
where he played the lead in what is unquestionably one of the 
handful of great musicals of all time: Lubitsch's shimmering, 
sparkling, super -sophisticated MONTE CARLO, with JEANETTE 
MACDONALD. For originality, humor and magnificent music it 
has never been topped. Time and repetition may appear to have 
taken the edge off it, but really BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON, 
by RICHARD WHITING, is one of the most refreshing, melodious 
and inventive songs ever penned in the popular idiom, and 
Lubitsch's dynamic use of the then new sound medium to exploit 
its potential remains one of the wonders of Hollywood, the like 
of which has* almost never been duplicated. The other songs are 
almost as good: ALWAYS IN ALL WAYS, WHATEVER IT IS, and 
the song that was RUBINOFF'S radio theme for so many years, 
GIVE ME A MOMENT PLEASE. All in all, as outstanding an 
original film score as you could find until, a quarter of a century 
later, RAYE AND DePAUL created the wonderful SEVEN BRIDES 
FOR SEVEN BROTHERS melodies. 

Although JEANETTE MacDONALD recorded the two hit songs 
from MONTE CARLO, BUCHANAN'S share in the delightful doings 
were passed by. One would think that HMV would have preserved 
this performance for the European fans who were so much more 
familiar with him, but they failed to. 

Other stage and screen appearances followed these, but for 
the most part they were greatly inferior, as the selections on the 
ACE OF CLUBS LP will attest, although there were several that 
were by no means as ineffectual as the current reissues, and per- 
haps HMV will sometime again make available some of the other 
better BUCHANAN groovings such as the 12" BUCHANAN MED- 
LEY, YES, MR. BROWN, LEAVE A LITTLE FOR ME, WEEP NO 
MORE MY BABY, YOU FORGOT YOUR GLOVES, ALONE WITH 
MY DREAMS, and some of the charming duets he did with ELSIE 
RANDOLPH: FANCY OUR MEETING, NOW THAT I'VE FOUND 
YOU, OCEANS OF TIME, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE. LIKE 
MONDAY FOLLOWS SUNDAY ... many of them show tunes that, 
incidentally, Noble fans may remember in dance versions by 
Noble with AlBowlly taking most of the choruses; in fact, althqugh 
I have not heard many of these, I feel certain that Noble did the 
Buchanan accompaniments, since I recognize his technique )n the 
ones I do have. 

The only Buchanan appearance on wax since those days, to 
my knowledge, is on the soundtrack album of the lively and any- 
thing but literal recreation of BAND WAGON, which M.G.M. 
did with FRED ASTAIRE ... and imported JACK BUCHANAN to 
give us the lone sample of teamwork involving these two parallel 
personalities. They made a delightful team, and although there 
is no Buchanan solo, he does the wonderful I GUESS I'LL HAVE 
TO CHANGE MY PLAN with ASTAIRE, and shares another couple 
of numbers with ASTAIRE and NANETTE FABRAY: TRIPLETS and 
THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT. Ifthere were other Buchanan" record- 
ings after this, I have no knowledge of them, and he died a few 
years afterwards. He did many notable songs in his day, intro- 
ducing some of them on Broadway in CHARLCT'S REVUE, WAKE 
UP AND DREAM, BETWEEN THE DEVIL and others.

Victoria Spivey, 

Blues 
Is My Business 

One of the happiest months of my life! I have had many 
Bands and Shows, but I'm telling you, few have measured up to 
the wonderful people I have had the honor of working with in the 
German Folk -Blues Festival which played 31 days from Oct. 23 
thru Nov. 22, 1963 through 8 countries and 22 cities. Everybody, 
the bosses, the managers, the producers, the blues stars, all were 
just great! 

First blues star was Big Joe Williams, a sweetheart, spoiled 
and funny as hell, but a star through and through. He was the 
'father' of the blues in this show. 

Second was Big Willie Dixon who was a 'bad' man not only 
with that bass but when he sang his 'Nervous Man' which about 
knocked everybody out. Personally, he's a sweet good natured 
soul with a heart as big as he. 

Third, there was Lonnie Johnson who is so sad looking at times 
that you just can't help loving him - and when he starts singing 
and wailing that guitar, watch out! ! He's a champ. 

Fourth, there's the dynamic Sonny Boy Williamson, I'm 
speaking of the original Sonny Boy, who looks like an aristocrat 
with his English derby, suit and umbrella, but my! my! when he 
grabs those 25 harps and starts making them fairly talk, you flip - 
and when he starts singing with that whispering voice, all you 
can do is stay in your chair and hold on. 

Fifth, comes Otis Spann who is a perfect little gentleman, 
but don't let that fool you. That cat can play more piano with 
his eyes shut than the average ' person with both eyes open. 

Sixth is Matt Guitar Murphy who today is the 'mostest' guitar 
player I have heard, and baby! I have been listening for '100 
years' (smiles). 

Seventh - Billy Stepney who needs no introduction. That kid 
can really swing his drums. I like him so much, I call him my 
son. 



Eighth, is the remarkable Muddy Waters. Here's an artist 
from his heart, a true trouper. What a voice! ! When he does 
'Hoochie Koochie' you might as well relax for awhile because he 
just sews the show up. 

Ninth, there's Memphis Slim, who's the Blues evangelist here 
in Europe. He's opened up so many places for us to sing in with 
his missionary work in the blues that his value is enormous. It 
was a wonderful pleasure to be associated with him. 

Well, all the boys called me their Queen and I addressed 
them as my Knights - and they really treated me like a Queen. 

Horst Lippmann, our employer was a wonderful fellow. Boy! 
did he take care of us! The best hotels, best jets, best trains, 
someone to look after our luggage, dressing rooms, looking after 
pur money needs and so much more. He made us really feel at 
home in Europe. 

There was Joe Berendt who was associated with Horst who was 
so sweet to me, took me to a swell restaurant in the Black Forest 
in Germany. It was Joe who suggested me for the tour and I still 
thank him. 

There was Fritz Rau, Horst's partner, who became one of my 

good friends. 

Then, there was poor little Lennie Kunstadt who worked so 
hard for me to make my stay happy. I'm mighty temperamental 
at times but Lennie calmed me down, and led me straight. 

I met so many wonderful people that it would take many more 
pages just to tell you about them. A few were Gunter & Lore 
Boas, Johnny and Liza Simmens, Hugues Panassie and Madame 
Gautier, Yannick Bruynoghe and^Mrs., Paul &• Valerie Oliver.. 
Robert Noss, Hartmut Joepchen, Derek Stewart-Baxter, Chris 
Barber, Derek Coller, George Adins, Stephanie Wiesand (sweet 
girl who took the photo), Mae Mercer, Mr. &■ Mrs. Jack Dupree, 
Mike Scheller, Curtis Jones, Vivian Snow, Karl Knudsen, Max 
Jones, Valerie Wilmer, Pam Bavin, Cyril Davies, Doug Dobell, 
Bill Tatum, Herb Koleczek and so many others. If I left some of 
you out, please forgive me. There will be other writeups of this 
wonderful festival. 

When the boys and I parted on our return jet flight to New 
York I cried like a child and some of them had tears in their eyes 
too. It was really wonderful that so many stars could work so 
well together and understand each other so well.

THE GOLDEN AGE OF FOLK RECORDING 
Ernest Thompson 



BY LEN KUNSTADT AND BOB COLTON 
Ernest Thompson was a direct antecedent of the present 
folk movement. He would have fitted in perfectly today 
with his high covering twangy voice and his self-accomp- 
anying guitar, harmonica and karoo. His performances were 
delightfully spiced with a strong' flavor 6f ragtiae arid 
minstrelsy. His presentations were models of a golden age 
which so many of us are trying to recreate at this time. 
We would like to learn more about him. Can anyone help? 




THE explosion, which years 
ago robbed Ernest Thomp- 
son of his eyesight, gave to the 
South one of its greatest min- 
strels. The visual power that 
was lost to him seems to have 
passed into the beauty and 
understanding of his singing. 
Ernest Thompson is claimed by 
all the South, although his na- 
tive state is North Carolina. 
Thompson is master of the 
guitar and the harmonica, and, 
like other famous Southern min- 
strels, has the ability to play his 
own accompaniments.

Our Ajax listing was based on Walter C. Allen's preliminary 
listing of the Ajax Catalog in JAZZ JOURNAL magazine in his 
column "Discomania" (July and August 1956 issues). Walt's data 
was compiled with the help of Perry Armagnac, John H. Baker, 
Clyde Clark, Will Roy Hearfie/ Ken Hulsizer, Len Kunstadt, Alex 
Robertson, Arnold Stilwell and Leslie Thornton. We have received 
aid from others and hope we've mentioned them when giving, their 
data. In last issue we mentioned data on two Compo promotional 
records for Sherwin-Williams Paint Company. This data was 
furnished by Alex Robertson, of Montreal, from the discs in his 
collection. We had thought that last time was the wrap-up for 
now on the Ajax data. But we still have a few more new facts to 
list to make the Catalog as up to the minute as possible. 

Here are the additions to add to our Ajax listing: Aj 17027 has 
been acquired by Walt Allen; here is the data - A. Don't Know 
And Don't Care Blues (Brooks) (31535) - Ethel Finnie, with Porter 
Grainger's Novel Three /B. Hula Blues (Grainger -Ricketts) (31538) 
- Same. Composer credits for Aj 17033 from Alex Robertson -_A. 
(Dvorak)/B. (Franz Drdla). Bob Mantler has Perfect 113 and the 
numbers 17041A and 17041B appear in.the wax. Therefore we 
can fill in details for Aj 17041 as follows: A. When The Saints 
Come Marching In (-) (31582 )- The Old Time Jubilee Singers. 
Mixed Quartet/B. That Old Time Religion (-) (31581) - Same. 
Further data on Aj 17056 is furnished by Alex Robertson: A. (1530) 
(Spitalny-Gordon-Zamecnik)/B. (1532) (Miller). Aj 17082 has 
been found by Bob Mantler and here is full data: A. Conjure Man 
Blues (Urquhart) (31620) - Helen Gross and The Choo Choo 
Jazzers/B. He Used To Be Mine (But You Can Have Him Now) 
(Holmes) (31622) - Hazel Meyers. No accompaniment credit is 
listed - the Choo Choo Jazzers are NOT mentioned ! Alex Robert- 
son reports that 17102 A and B appear in the wax of Apex 8269. 
So we can assume that Aj 17102 is the same: A. Ask Her When 
Shadows Fall (Grossman-White-Lange) (5662-1) - Nathan Glantz 
And His Orchestra /B. The Pal That I Loved Stole The Gal That I 
Loved (Pease-Nelson) (5661-1) - Same. Alex also adds composer 
credit for Aj 17105 - A (from Apex 8340B) as (Friml). And the 
artist credit on 8340B is Ben Selvin's Orchestra and not California 
Ramblers! Numbers in the wax of Apex 8340B are: 8277 A, 8340B, 
19002A and 17105A. Alex says that 8277A is another issue of this 
master (5706-2) and here the credit reads Selvin's Orchestra. 
Alex adds full data for Aj 17108 from Star Gennett 8295 (with 
17108A and B in wax) as: A. How Do You Do (Fleming- Harrison- 
De Voll) (5803-1). Lew Gold's Dance Orchestra/B. Oh! Mabel 
(Kahn-Fiorito) (5764-2) - California Ramblers (Vocal Chorus, 
Arthur Fields). Alex also reports on APEX 8323A with 8308A and 
17112A in wax: O Katharina (Gilbert-Fall) (5821-2) - The Cali- 
fornia Ramblers. For Aj 17113B, Alex gives composer credits 
from Starr Gennett 10018: (DeSylva-Green-Henderson). Also in 
wax: 8309A and 21045B. For Aj 17114B, Alex gives from Starr 
Gennett 8322B (in wax: 8311B and 17114B): (Berlin). Alex also 
gives us the following further data for Aj 17123 from Apex 8316 
with Ajax numbers in wax: A. Honest And Truly (Rose) (5842-1) - 
Rex Battle And His Dance Orchestra/B. Why Couldn't It Be Poor 
Little Me? (Kahn-Jones) (5811-2) - Fletcher Henderson And His 
Orchestra. 

Most important news of all is that there is at least one higher 
Ajax issue than we knew about when we ended our Ajax catalog 
at 17133! Walt Allen saw Ajax 17134 in an auction list, bid on 
it, but didn't win it. Subsequent inquiry informs us that John 
Baker was the winner and we have asked John for full details. We 
hope to receive this information from John soon and will pass it 
on in a future column. Meanwhile, partial data follows: Aj 17134- 



Give Me Just A Little Bit Of Love-Josie Miles and The Choo Choo 
Jazzers/Crepe Hanger Blues - Susie Smith and The Choo Choo 
Jazzers. Is this the highest Ajax? 

Label of the Month: Here is a not uncommon member of the 
Grey Gull family. It is an attractive label in four colors. Black, 
white, gold and red. The upper half is black with label name in 
gold -striped white letters, a black and white portrait of Van Dyke 
on a red background, and the phrase in gold: Each Record A Mas- 
terpiece. The lower half is a white panel with titling in black. 
A distinctive feature of this label is its splitting of the 4 -digit 
master number into two parts, the last two digits being printed 
immediately below the first two digits. (The only other label 
doing this, to our knowledge, is Sunrise - another late Grey Gull 
fa'mily member.) 



f/i'ii ' *'■: 



Von Duke 




Our illustration is the "B" si'deoi Van Dyke 71804 and complete 
data for it is as follows: A. Turn On The Heat (De Sylva, Brown, 
Henderson) (3762 A) as by Collegiate Jazzers, vocal chorus/B. In 
Harlem's Araby (Grainger) (3744 B) as by Dixie Devils. 3762 A 
also appears on Radiex 1804 as: Sung By Vel Veteran. University 
Syncopators. 3744 A (an alternate take of the above) appears on 
Radiex 1804 and also on Radiex 931, both as: Memphis Jazzers. 
The Radiex 931 coupling differs from that of Radiex 1804 and Van 
Dyke 71804'. The 3000 and 4000 series masters appearing on Van 
Dyke are Grey Gull masters of the electrically recorded series cut 
at its own New York studios. 

Most Van Dyke records duplicate couplings that appear on. Grey 
Gull and Radiex; and so their catalog numbers could be, and were, 
derived from the latter, by simply attaching an arbitrary numerical 
prefix. Up to the end of 1929, the Van Dyke catalog number 
placed a "7" prefix before the Grey Gull catalog number. A little 
later, the prefix was changed to an "8". The reason for the change 
is obscure. (It was not at the dividing line between Grey Gull 
1700's and 1800's, as will be seen from the following listings. ) 

Thus, taking the known range of these Van Dyke series, we 
have: Dance - Van Dyke 71726 to 71811 equal Grey Gull 1726 to 
1811. Van Dyke 81818 to 81894 equal Grey Gull 1818 to 1894. 
Vocal - Van Dyke 72485 to 72522 equal Grey Gull 2485 to 2522. 
Van Dyke82524 to 82538 equal Grey Gull 2524 to 2538. Standard - 
Van Dyke 74004 to 74290 equal Grey Gull 4004 to 4290. Van 
Dyke 84160 equals Grey Gull 4160 (only example noted). "Race" 
- Van Dyke 77023 to 77039 equal Grey Gull 7023 to 7039. (Van 
Dyke 87000's, if any, unknown to us. ) Besides this more-or-less 
consistent numbering practice, Van Dyke records occasionally 
are numbered in a few other catalog number series, as follows: 
Van Dyke 900's - May correspond to late Radiex 900's. Van Dyke 
5100 's - No known equivalent. Van Dyke 7000 's - Van Dyke 
7023 equals Grey Gull 7023. (Only example noted; a case of a 
forgotten prefix?) Van Dyke 7800 's - No known equivalent. 

The only concrete facts we have pertaining to price and manu- 
facturer of Van Dyke are an advertisement in Talking Machine 
World and a throwaway. The ad, in TMW for August 1929, con- 
tains the following text: "A de-luxe 35-cent seller. Here s a 
superlatively good recordbuyt especially for high-grade merchants 
who desire to sell a standard record at a popular price with a good 
profit margin. Write tor samples and prices. Van Dyke Record

DOLLY KAY 



DOLLY KAY without reservation made a permanent 
niche in the glorified period of the roaring 20s. Her 
hefty voice was well-known to audiences and phono- 
graph record listeners. She, like Sophie Tucker, Blossom 
Seelev and others, were not the anaemic type nor like the 
mike babies of today. They had to sing, often without the 
use of amplification, to large audiences. Their voices had 
to be strong and full. Dolly had a voice that adapted it- 
self well to the vaudevillian and jazz-bluey tunes of the 
second decade. Columbia had her on recordings for seven 
years which was a testimonial to her popularity.

"WHERE ARE THEY ?? " 

TED FLORITA recently retired from the band biz to his Scottsdale, 
Ariz, home where he'll write an occasional song like he did years 
ago. PAUL WHITEMAN is still around (home base is New Hope, 
Pa.) and currently a rabid sports race car buff (takes a 130 mph 
spin when his family isn't looking) takes in all the Summer & 
Winter sports car races- is dir. of the Daytona Beach, Fla. sports 
car track. ALLEN EAGER, who was a rather prominent hot tenor 
during the bop era- -and also blew with bands of Bobby Shewood, 
Sonny Dunham, T. Dorsey, Johnny Bothwell, Shorty Sherock, 
Buddy Rich, etc. nowadays is a stock car racer in Fla. <&• Nassau. 
Makes his home in Nassau, B.W.I, with his rich N. Y. wife. 
HORACE HEIDT, nowadays is retired from band leading, and is a 
Van Nuys, Cal. realtor-recer\tly wed Mrs. Dorothy Brown, AN. 
H'wood, Cal. interior decorator. Sharp pops singer HELEN 
MERRILL (ex-wife of hot clary Aaron Sachs) away from the U.S. 
for almost four years- -signed with an outfit called "Personality 
Productions" and will split her engagements between Euiope and 



the USA. JIMMY TYSON, the big band mgr. who guided TOMMY 
DORSEY in the 40s, is back on top and swinging again--but this 
time promoting art instead of jazz (not that jazz can't be art). 
Jimmy's gimmick is taking an art gallery on the road with one 
nite stands and all the hooppla he employed on band tours. 
WARD WILSON, the old NYC radio engineer years before TV 
was commercial --who graduated to mimmicking the radio stars 
he monitored to radio quiz panels- -sports casting, acting, etc., 
nowadays a TV jack of all trades in Palm Beach, Fla. TOMMY 
BENFORD, drummer of International renown who has spent the 
past ten years playing in London, Paris, & Rome, has returned 
home and now setting solid beats for EDMUND HALL's Hot combo 
at EDDIE CONDON'S NYC club. Remember DOLLY DAWN with 
her DAWN PATROL over the MBS network- -on records with her 
late adopted father & later husband- -GEORGE HALL's band? To- 
day DOLE Y's back in NYC and is featured singer at the Greenwich 
Village "Bon Soir" club. Ex child film star FREDDIE BARTHOLO- 
MEW nowadays is an account exec with BENTON & BOWLES- - 
adv. agency. Whatever happened to EDDIE WEBER, who used to 
be in charge of radio's moneymaker "Can You TOP THIS?" 
EDDIE who pounded piano for EVA TANGUAY, NORA BAYES, 
FANNY BRICE & others whose names are monuments to the fabu- 
lous past, has been mus. dir. show biz' famed SAINTS & SINNERS 
Club for some years. But "civilians" can dig WEBER tickling the 
ivories each Monday at NYC's Sheraton Motor Inn Pub. SONNY 
TUFTS, who played piano & drums during his student days at

found himself, and back in Hollywood doing film & TV acting

HOWARD LANIN 

Some of the mysteries. surrounding Victor 19797 by HOWARD 
LANIN'S BEN FRANKLIN HOTEL ORCHESTRA appear to be coming 
to light. Older discographies listed this item as "featuring Red 
Nichols". Although the horn work sounded very much like Nichols, 
I always doubted this because Red claimed he never recorded with 
HOWARD LANIN. After all, there was a Howard Lanin who had 
an orchestra at the Ben Franklin Hotel in, Philadelphia back in the 
twenties. Brian Rust included this record in his recent "Jazz 
Records" complete with recording date and instrumentation, but 
with personnel unknown. 

JoeRushton, extraordinary bass saxophonist mainstay and foun- 
dation of the Nichols' Pennies since 1947, and student of the 
Rollini-Bix-Nichols era reported that Vi 19797 definitely featured 
Red Nichols. This called for further investigation. Brad McCuen 
ot RCA was kind enough jx> check the Victor files and unveiled two 
important points. First, the actual director of this session was 
SAM Lanin; second, the recording was made in a Camden church. 

Nichols made hundreds of recordings for Sam Lanin and many 
still require documentation. Red also remembers going to Cam- 
den, N.J. for one or two recording sessions. He could not recall 
further details except that he thought one was made in a church. 
Because of these bits of information we now list Red Nichols on 
the following: 

HOWARD LANIN'S BEN FRANKLIN HOTEL ORCHESTRA - 
Sam Lanin, Director 

September 29, 1925 - recorded in Camden, N.J. church 
Instrumentation: 2 cornets, tb, 3 saxes, bjo, tuba, p.

• Takes 1 and 4 were destroyed and take 3 held for 30 days 
•• Takes 1,2, and 3 were destroyed and take 4 held for 30 days. 

Before this session the Victor files show three more listings for 
HOWARD LANIN. There are significant differences to be noted, 
however. Details presented below show that JOE Lanin was the 
director; the instrumentation is the same except the drums are 
omitted. They were recorded on the "5th Floor" which we assume 
was in New York City.

SWINGING 
WITH ZACC 

by MIKE ZACCAGNINO 



"You and your lousy 'let them 
hear the records' policy." 



10 



Brother Collectors prepare yourselves for we are about to take 
another dark and daring journey into the mysterious land of Solo- 
ville. We must all try and find our thinking caps so we can con- 
centrate on who is playing the solos on all the following recordings 
which come from my humble collection. So let us. not waste one 
precious minute and let's hope we have as successful a trip as 
the last one. 

"Who's Yehoodi" Jerry Colonna ace. by Fud and his Fuddy 
Bears (Columbia 35512), there is a tenor solo which could be Fud 
Livingston himself. Any ideas anyone?? Who is the clary and 
piano ace. Ella Fitzgerald on "Someone Like You" (Decca 25462) 
How about the tenor and clarinet on "Swing Fever" by Mai Hallet 
Orch. (Vocalion 3256)?? The reverse is "Mary Lou" which has 
clary, muted tpt. tenor and piano. For all the Jan Savitt fans I 
have the following information, the trumpet on "El Rancho Grande" 
(Decca 2771) is Johnny Austin and the drummer on "Shabby Old 
Cabby (Decca 2600) is Buddy Schutz who later joined Jimmy 
Dorsey. "Rose of the Rio Grande" (Decca 3945) has Al Leopold on 
trombone, Johnny Austin on trumpet and Fran Ludwig on tenor 
The piano is I think "Tiger" Jack Pleis. This was Fran Ludwig's 
first record date. Anyone know the tenorman on "Bermuda Buggy 
ride" by Al Donahue (Decca 989) while the reverse is "I Want the 
Whole World to Love You" which has solos by muted trumpet and 
either a flute or clarinet, I can't tell. Also by Donahue is "Moon 
Love /To You" (Vocalion 4888) with Paula Kelly singing on both 
sides. There is a clarinet solo on both sides which sounds like the 
same guy doing both of them. Any idea who he is?? Drummer 
Buddy Rich had his own band for a while and made some real 
swinging discs like "Dateless Brown" (Mercury 3001) - which features 
tpt-tenor-trb-and piano. "Quiet Riot" (Mercury 3017) features a 
hot tenor chorus and also drums by the King himself. Any help as 
to the soloists on any of these?? There is a muted tpt. and piano 
on "Red Sails in the Sunset" and a muted tpt. on "Georgia Rocking 
Chair" by Hank Biagini on Perfect 5-11-12). Anyone know who 
they are??" Blue Rain/Moon Ray by the Terry Snyder Trio (Varsi- 
ty 8111) has Vibes-Bass and Guitar. The vibes I know are by Terry 
Snyder (who recently passed away) but does anyone know who the 
bass and guitar are?? Who is the alto on "With A Twist of the 
Wrist" by Al Donahue (Okeh 6012) while the reverse is "Keep an 
Eye on Your Heart" which features alto and trumpet. Then there 
is "The Blue Jump" (Okeh 5828) which has tpt. -tenor and piano 
backed by "Burning the Midnight Oil" where the trumpet and tenor 
are heard. Any idea on any of these Al Donahue records?? 

Next we have "Alexander's Back in Town" a Jerry Sears Session 
which has a Peg LaCentra vocal. The soloists are tpt. (Pee Wee 
Erwin) and clary-tenor-trombone and a bit of guitar. Any help 
on this Bluebird (10021)?? The reverse is "Noodlin' on which 
Peg also sings and has a tenor, piano and Pee Wee's horn. How 
about the following Chick Bullocks' "East of the Sun" (Me 350902) 
which has trb. and muted trumpet?? The reverse is "I'll Never 
Say Never Again Again" which features tpt. guitar, violin and 
muted trumpet. How about "I'll see You in my Dreams" (Vo 4583) 
which ,has piano and trb. The reverse is "I Used to Love You" 
which has piano and muted tpt. Next is "You Don't Know How 
Much You Can Suffer" (Vo 4682) which features a trb. How about 
"My Gal Sal" (Vo 4244) which has growltpt. and trb. Then we 
have "Melancholy Baby" (Vo 4402) which has muted tpt. , bass 
clary??, violin. -The back is "Somebody Loves Me" which has 
muted trumpet and trombone. I have many more of Chick Bullock 
which i will list in a future column. His records are sparsely 
listed anywhere, yet they all contain some of the great musicians 
of the late 20's and thirties, and some great solos. Pee Wee Erwin 
told me that he made many of the dates and I know that Bunny, 



\- 



~ MY SSL/ , W^ b^'lttjlkyte/ 

ArtieShaw, Sterling Bose, Joe Venuti, Tony Parenti, Chauncey 
Morehouse, Stan King and the Dorseys can be found on some of 
his recordings. Incidentally, speaking of Bullock, does anyone 
Wnow where he is today?? Is he still living, retired or what? The 
same goes for Harold "Scrappy" Lambert who also made many 
records in his day, whatever became of him?? <_ <v 



I sent George Thow a tape containing the two takes of "Sweet 
Georgia Brown" date which has Bing Crosby with orch. ace. plus 
some Bunny Berigan things, Charlie Teagarden with Jimmy Dorsey 
and some Dorsey Bros, which George was a part of. He replied in 
a recent letter and had this to say: "Needless to say I was delighted 
with the entire tape. I had never heard the "B" master of the 
Crosby date and it was quite a kick. Some of the Dorsey Bros, 
stuff I had completely forgotten. Enjoyed all the things by Bunny 
and was thrilled with the Charlie T. stuff. As you say, our asso- 
ciation goes back quite a long time and he is and always has been 
tome just about the head man, and has never received the recog- 
nition he deserves. Nowto clarify a few things: (1) The saxophone 
on the "Sweet Georgia Brown" was not alto, but tenor and was 
played by Saxie Mansfield. (2) The trombone on the date was 
definitely Jack Jenny, Sonny Lee joined the Jones band late in 
1933 (3) the only recording I had done prior to joining Jones was 
with a bancTat Harvard (The Gold Coast Orchestra) around 1926 or 
1927. We made four sides for the old Perfect Co. The equipment 
was faulty and the sides were never, released except for the indi- 
vidual pressings made for the guys in the band. Don't even recall 
the names of the tunes. (4) Regarding the Dorsey Bros, dates, I 
did all the dates from June 1934 until they split up in June or July 
of 1935. However, I missed about two dates due to an infected 
lip. Charlie Spivak has been added to the band to bolster the 
brass for the floor show at the Palais Royale and it is my recollec- 
tion that he subbed for me on some of these sides. I'm quite sure 
it is Charlie on the Dec. 21st and Dec. 28th dates, and I believe 
we used two trumpets on the Jan. 4th date. I doubt that Jerry 
Neary was on any of these dates. (HD lists George Thow or Jerry 
Neary tpts.) As I told you my daughter absconded with what few 
oldies I had in that category so I wouldn't mind having dupes of 
some of them like "Milenberg Joys" "Honeysukle Rose" "I've Got 
Your Number" by the Dorsey Bros. I did a session for Brunswick 
here in Hollywood in 1937 under the title "Bill Harty Presents 
George Van Eps" and among the tunes were "Squatting at the 
Grotto" "Varsity Drag" and two others. Have never been able to 
locate these. " (Have any of you out there any of these and if so, 
I'll gladly accept a tape of them to send on to George in appreci- 
ation for sending me this wonderful information. Naturally, I 
will pay for the tape and postage etc. 

That's about it for now and once again let me say thanks to 
all of you who have deluged me with letters and am happy to see 
my column meet with your approval. 

ED. NOTE: Regarding George Thow and the "Gold Coast Orchestra" 
- In an ancient issue of RR, back in October 1955 we had the 
following:on page 21: 
GOLD COAST ORCHESTRA - Issued or Unissued ! ! 

A recording session was made by a Boston band known as the 
Gold Coast Orchestra for the Pathe -Perfect organization about 
1925-1926, so reports Dr. Roy Lamson of Williams College, Vt. 
Lamson, who was a participating musician, believed that the 
recording titles were never issued. Personnel for the recordings 
were: 

George Thow - trumpet (later to be associated with the Dorsey 
Bros.) Roy Lamson- alto and Clarinet, .(he recalls taking a half 
chorus clarinet solo on one of the sides); Johnny Green -Alto (this 
is the same 'Green' who today is one of Hollywood's most success- 
ful studio band conductors); Charles Henderson - pianist. 

Other instrumentation consisted of trombone, two other reeds, 
banjo and sousaphone? . . . Lamson could not recall the names of 
the recorded tunes however he does recall that two sides were waxed.

HENDERSONIA 

Walter C. Allen 



In his discography of Bessie Smith some years ago, George 
Avakian stated that only one alternate take of hers had ever been 
issued, that being MUDDY WATER. But within the last four or 
five years, FOUR additional second masters of Bessie Smith have 
been discovered: SOFT PEDAL BLUES, by Perry Armagnac; YEL- 
LOW DOG BLUES and NASHVILLE WOMEN'S BLUES, by Jeff 
Tarrer of Atlanta; and CARELESS LOVE BLUES by myself. In ad- 
dition.Russ Connor found an alternate of Maggie Jones' CHE AT IN" 
ON ME. All of these alternates have accompaniments by Fletcher 
Henderson units. 

This prompted a search in the Columbia files (courtesy of 
Frank Driggs) to see what the original matrix cards showed. As 
it happens, the cards do not specifically state which takes-were 
released , but do show whether a given take was 'Rejected' or 
'OK' (i.e. approved for release.) In many cases, two different 
takes were 'OK' but one was always marked '1st Choice' and the 
other "2nd Choice. ' In most, BUT NOT ALL cases, the known 
issued takes were the ones marked 'OK', generally the First 
Choice. Some '2nd Choice' takes are known, and these seem to 
be the rarer pressings of a given issue, indicating that only a few 
copies Were pressed from the less desirable take. But in at least 
three known cases, a Henderson take marked 'Rejected' was 
definitely issued! 

Here are the Henderson accompaniments to Bessie Smith from 
the period in which the known or possible alternates occur. 
Listed are the matrix number, tune title, takes recorded and 
their disposition (R - Rejected; F - First Choice; S - Second 
Choice), and those takes KNOWN to have been issued in the last 
column. For the present, I am listing only those titles with two 
takes OK'd_or released. The rarer take, from my experience, is 
marked with an asterisk. (*)

I hope that you will be prompted to look over your > llection 
for any of these items (keeping in mind that the 'takes' on dub 
masters, such as on some of the Parlophones, are not necessarily 
the same as the true takes on master pressings) and see if you have 
a take which is different from those known so far. Two of the 
known alternates are Louis Armstrong items, so several others 
may exist as well! In future issues, I will deal with the accom- 
paniments to other singers by Fletcher Henderson units and with 
the Henderson band titles for Columbia family labels, in this 
same fashion. Let me hear from you at P. O. Box 501, Stanhope, 
New Jersey. _. - - ... 



BLUES Iff REVIEW 

* * * * * * 

"by Barry Hansen 



JIMMY REED - Vee Jay 509 

63-3067 SHAME, SHAME, SHAME (Jimmy Reed) 

63-3069 THERE'LL BE A DAY (Jimmy Reed) 
Vocals with harmonica, el. guitars, el. bass & drums. 

Jimmy Reed, who has experimented with vocal groups and such 
tripe on several recent discs, makes a happy return to his old 
down-home st yle on this effort, and the public has shown unusual 
discretion by making it Reed's fastest -selling single in some time . 
SHAME is as intense and hard -driving as anything he has ever 
done; the flip is less exceptional but still quite successful. 
Limited as he is, Reed has an uncanny way of producing compel- 
ling music, record after record, when left to himself. 

LITTLE WALTER - Checker 1043 
U-12168 UP THE LINE (W. Jacobs & W. Dixon) - 1 
U-12171 SOUTHERN FEEDING (W. Dixon & B. Emerson) -2 

Vocal (-1 only) with harp, saxes, piano, organ (-2), el. guitar 
(-2), bass & drums. 

UP THE LINE makes for interesting comparison to a 1955 Little 
Walter disc, I GOT TO GO (#817). Both are uptempo songs on 
the same theme. On the earlier disc Walter sings in a gripping, 
high and clear voice, and plays several choruses of all-out harp , 
combining with a superb drummer for a very exciting record. 
UP THE LINE is a fair enough song, but Walter's performance is 
sadly inferior to his earlier work. The strength and clarity of his 
voice is gone, and the singing is weak and straining. The har- 
monica style is recognizable, but Walter's chorus is quite 
unrelated either to the tune or to the honking baritone saxes 
which do their best to lend excitement to the date. The reverse 
is a pleasant little dance number on which the large band carries 
the ball most of the way, with Walter's harp lending flavor rather 
than substance. 

SONNY BOY WILLIAMSON - Checker 1036, Pye 7N 25191 

U-12114 BYE BYE BIRD (Dixon-Williamson) 

U-12115 HELP ME (Williamson-Bass) -1 
Vocals with harp, guitar (electric on-1), organ, drums. 

The continually evolving Chicago style has given rise to such 
a host of banalities that oneistempted to give up on it altogether. 
Once in a while, however, there is a record in the modern style 
in which everything seems to jell, a record which in a flash 
makes the whole development seem natural if not inevitable. 
Sonny Boy's HELP ME is such a disc. It is modern all around, 
electric organ and all, but the elements of great blues are present 
in force: a superb piece of material, with Sonny Boy's voice (the 
most thrilling since Estes) at its best, complemented by his 
beautiful harp work. The organ is just right; a piano would ruin 
everything. The flip, with only a brief vocal, is a harp show- 
piece with fine organ counterpoint. This is very likely the best 
blues single in several years; its current British release should be 
warmly welcomed.

BEYOND THE IMPRESSION 



REPORTED BY JOHN STEINER 



EARLIEST RECORDED BLUES? 

A letter written by Levi H. Bancroft on October 20, 1884 
while he was a student at the University of Wisconsin is quoted 
in the November 1962 THEN AND NOW, a magazine published 
by the Wisconsin Historical Society: "My dear Father and >iother 
-- I don't like to ask for money and it gives me the blues so I 
can't study for a couple of days whenever I think how much it 
costs and how little my parents can afford to keep me here. ---'•' 

MORE 

Inthemid-40's I lived with pianist Jack Gardner and suitcase 
rhythmist Josh Billings just off Mich Boul on Ontario. Gardner 
immortalized the place in his recording ONTARIO^BARRELHOUSE. 
and in many other ways. 

Billings told me about a recording date which he had made 
with Condon and McKenzie which he assumed had not been issued 
because he had not encountered the record. However, I found 
the record for him, the INDIANA /FIRE HOUSE on Co 1946. Josh 
could not then recall the name of the violinist who was the fourth 
member of the group. 

Interviewing Bruce Yantis a few years ago, he informed me 
that he had recorded with McKenzie and Condon and Billings, and 
sure enough, it was the same item. This was the only hot record- 
ing Yantis ever made. However, he played with and recorded 
commercial material (now apparently completely forgotten in 
title or other detail) for Smith Ballew (1928-31 and 1933-34), 
Meyer Davis, Will Osborne (1931-33) and Freddie Martin (1935 -36). 

Yantis believes that Teagarden had been invited to participate 
on the McKenzie-Condon date mentioned, and recording was 
held up for an hour awaiting Tea, who didn't show. Yantis 
recalled that the date was so casual that he was called an hour or 
two before recording time. 

GOLDKETTE CORRECTION 

Art Gronwall who arranged for and played piano for Gene 
Goldkette during the leader's Chicago Period, supplies the follow- 
ing corrections: Art's name is spelled Gronwall. 

On THAT'S MY WAY OF FORGETTING YOU, Vi 21590, 
the tenor sax solo is by Dale Skinner. The personnel for this 
record was substantially as given for the June 26, 1928 
Goldkette recording date in Jazz Records, Second Ed. How- 
ever, there were no Mc Kinney men in the band as suggested 
in the same source. Bose, trumpet, not Bix.

IN MEMORY OF JACK CRYSTAL 



JAZZMAN JACK CRYSTAL DIES SUDDENLY 

Jack Crystal, of Commodore Records fame, died suddenly of 
a heart attack in Long Beach, L. I. , where he made his home, 
Tuesday night, 15th October. He was 54. Crystal, a jazz 
authority and veteran of 25 years in the jazz record business, was 
the general manager of the old Commodore Music Shop which 
was a mecca for jazz record collectors. The shop, which closed 
five years ago, was as Crystal once said "the pioneer and last 
refuge of good jazz". In recent years he was the secretary and 
guiding force behind Commodore Records, first of the jazz record 
labels. He also ran jam sessions at Jimmy Ryan's and the Central 
Plaza and recently promoted a series of jazz concert benefits for 
the Musicians Aid Society. It was Crystal who organized those 
successful benefit jazz concerts for the late Hot Lips Page and 
Gene Sedric. 

Funeral services were held at the Garlick Funeral Home in the 
Bronx on Thursday, 17th October - and the many jazz musicians 
who attended included: Henry "Red" Allen, Max Kaminsky, Buck 
Clayton, Herman Autrey, Louis Metcalf, Jimmy & Marion 
McPartland, Sandy Williams, Benny Morton, Dickie Wells, Chief 
Russell Moore, Herb Flemmirg, Conrad Janis, Tyree Glenn, 
Pee Wee Russell, Buster Bailey, Tony Parenti, Sol Yaged, Eddie 
Barefield, Red Richards, Clarence Johnson, Willie "The Lion" 
Smith, Jo Jones, Zutty Singleton, Sonny Greer, Panama Francis, 
Cliff Leeman, Herb Cowans, Jackie Williams, Beulah Bryant and. 
other friends included Dan Morgenstern, Nesuhi Ertegan, Jack 
Bradley, Jeann Failows, MortFega, Harry Lim, Jeff Atterton, Sam 
Goody and songwriter Jack Palmer. 

Jack Crystal, who was often called the iron lung of jazz, will 
long be remembered not only as a good friend to musicians but as 
a kind and unselfish man who gave of himself and devoted his life 

£0 jazz. 

Jeff Atterton. 



A TRIBUTE 

My association with the late Jack Crystal goes back to early 
1943 when I used to stop in the Commodore Music Shop on 42nd 
St. and listen to the latest records that Commodore had recorded 
featuring George Wettling, Brunies, Wild Bill, Pee Wee, Condon 
and later walking out with them under my arm. This was to occur 
many many times until finally it seemed I had every Commodore 
record made but I knew the money was well spent because some 
mighty fine sessions came from the Commodore label. During 
all this time I got to know Jack more and more and better and 
better and believe me, his sudden death came as a tremenuous 
blow for me and too also for his many friends which include mu- 
sicians and fans alike. I don't believe there is a musician alive 
today who knew Jack that could honestly say a bad word about. 
While he was running the sessions on Friday and Saturday at the 
Central Plaza, I know he did his best to give all the musicians a 
fair shake and try to give them work when there wasn't too much 
around. He certainly did what he could to keep Dixieland alive 
and guys like Jack, Jimmy Ryan and Eddie Condon should be 
commended for their tireless efforts to keep music alive. I know 
the benefit for Jack Crystal to be at the Plaza on Dec. 8th will 
be a tremendous success and believe me he certainly deserves it 
and it's only too bad it had to happen this way. 

Mike Zaccagnino,

Musicians lost the greatest friend 

Not only New York musicians but a friend of any musician 
and singer, no matter from where they come from, be it 
Mississippi or China, they all understand what I mean. 

I worked many weekends for Jack at Central Plaza at a time 
when I was bringing up my two girls - and could not afford the 
time to go out and get a full time job because of my responsibili- 
ties. Jack understood this and treated me real right, paying me 
top money, seeing to it that I had proper transportation and 
making my jobs as pleasant as possible. He didn't have to do 
this, but his heart was so full for all of us that he often went way 
out of his way to help us. 

It was such a terrible shock to me when I learned about his 
passing, after I recently returned from my European tour. Just 
before I went overseas he comforted me about my fear of flying. 
We even took a picture together for old times sake. I could never 
believe that when I would return there would be no more Jack to 
greet me with his impish grin at the Central Plaza and say, 'Hi 
Vick, you've been a good girl' and I would give him one of my 
peck kisses. 

We have certainly lost a true champion. God Bless you, Jack 

- Victoria Spivey.

Boston, Mass. 

October-1928 to March 1929. Credit is "Grey Gull Records, Inc., 
mAnufacturers of Radiex and Grey Gull Records. "), 693 Tremont 
St.. Boston, Mass. (TMW 1919 ads for Grey Gull.), 295 Hunting- 
ton Ave. , Boston 17, Mass. (TMW ads in 1920 for Grey Gull.) and 
135 Dorchester Ave. , Boston, Mass. (In an ad in Judge magazine, 
1927, for Globe records "guaranteed to be recorded by Grey Gull" 
and credited to Globe Record Co.). 

The throwaway, labelled "Second December Release, " is 1929 
and gives no address or manufacturer's name. It does state "Sold 
in this city only by S. S. Kresge Co. " In this dance series records 
up to Van Dyke 71799 are listed. It can be certain Van Dyke 
were issued in both 1929 and 1930. What can anyone add to these 
facts? 

Plaza 5000 series: We again continue to list masters in this 
series, giving master number, tune title, artist credit and the 
label and catalog number from which the data were 'obtained. We 
are asking YOU to fill in our blanks, if you can! See the intro- 
ductionof this series in the July 1961 issue (Number 36) for details. 
See' each column from then on for the listings. We continue the 
listing this time with 5376. 

Contact us at Salem Road, RFD 2, Pound Ridge, New York 
10576 or c/o this magazine. We hope to have further Ajax data 
in the near future. We also hope to have the first Perfect Errata 
and Addenda shortly. Until next time.
